Event Summary
The Chronicles of Web Standard - Prince Comet: Next Wave of Comet will be an exciting event covering Comet (aka Reverse AJAX).  We will alos discuss topics such as HTML 5 and other future enhancements to the web. This event will start with a general introduction to Comet, followed by an in depth panel discussion moderated by Kevin Nilson with panelist: Alex Russell, Michael Carter, Ted Goddard, Greg Wilkins, Dylan Schiemann

What is Comet
AJAX became popular because it allowed the browser to make additional requests to web servers to update a page. One major limitation of AJAX is that the browser must initiate the request for data. Comet on the other hand allows the web server to push data to the browser at any time.

What is WebSocket
The HTML5 WebSocket standard defines the future of networking for browser applications, delivering full-duplex, bidirectional text-based communication between browsers and WebSocket servers. The WebSocket connection handshake leverages the HTTP standard to integrate with existing Web infrastructure, such as proxies, firewalls and load balancers, and then upgrades the wire protocol to remove the limitations of the HTTP request-response communication model. With WebSockets, browsers will be able to participate as first-class citizens in networked applications that are typically reserved for desktop clients, such as XMPP (Jabber) chat applications, as well as online gaming and financial trading applications.
